Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Praise for Julia Kuo's illustration work for "Clara Lee and the Apple Pie Dream"

"Clara Lee thinks, speaks, and acts just like the third grader she is in this charming early chapter book. Black-and-white drawings, some full page and some spot art, feature the child, her dilemmas, and her successes. Fans of Clementine will enjoy this endearing character and will eagerly await a follow-up story." - School Library Journal

"Julia Kuo's cover art for Clara Lee and the Apple Pie Dream sparkles as brightly as Clara Lee's personality. The colors just pop! Her interior art brings the story and its characters to life. She does a phenomenal job of capturing the characters' personalities and what they are thinking and feeling in their facial expressions." -  Cyrenagasse blogger

Kirkus Reviews
A simple board-book catalog of the foods eaten by both animals and humans. Each spread features an animal eating a favorite item on one side, a sentence explaining this in a blocky font on the other, and an image of how people prepare and eat this foodstuff hovering above the text. For example, in one illustration, a bear climbs a tree toward a beehive. This picture is paired with the simple sentence: "Bears eat honey." Above this phrase is a spot image of a Winnie-the-Pooh–like honey pot and a honey dipper. The last spread features a young girl, who appears on the cover and on one previous interior page, eating all the foods mentioned previously while her animal co-stars look longingly at the repast. Some of the animal food/human food connections may be a little abstract for youngsters ("Mice eat seeds" is paired with an image of seed-encrusted crackers), but the spare text will hopefully encourage adult readers to fill in the blanks for their youngsters. Kuo, a talent to watch, paints on blond wood, and this adds a natural warmth to her appealingly dainty animals and landscapes. Although slightly too abstract in concept in some instances, the art is a feast for the eyes. (Board book. 2-4)
